Trying to verify the connection of Mercy Bartlett to John Joy/Jay.The info I have been seeing on various sites indicates that Richard Warren came on the Mayflower in 1620.His daughter Mary Warren b.1610 m. Robert Bartlett b.1603.Their daughter Mercy Bartlett b.1650 m. John Joy/Jay b.1641.Others report that Thomas Joy, John's father may have changed the Joy name to Jay either on purpose or through error in reading a handwritten document, or possibly one of the John Joy's may have been the name change.There is also a disputed account that Mercy Bartlett married a John Ivey and not John Joy.
Robert S. Wakefield's book covered this time period but I do not have access to it.
Also the Mayflower Society has five generations listed but I also do not have access to it either.
Look at this lineage and see if you have anything to offer and please let me know. Thanks.

Some accounts show William Jay b.1720 as the son of the John Joy/Jay but I believe time span to long.Others show a John Joy/Jay or possible Joseph John Joy/Jay b. 1690.
